I know some of you will have seen this image already but I thought it was worth posting for those who haven’t.

This amazing image of Great Britain under it’s icy topping was captured by NASA (Satellite Terra) yesterday.  I don’t think  (in living memory) I can’t recall a time when Britain has been completely covered by snow and ice before.

    Isn’t it fabulous?

    I said, elsewhere, it looks like the ice cap I saw from a plane flying over Baffin Island, in our Canadian Arctic. You must be cold. Dress warm, in many layers. Never mind the bulk! Some rum also helps…:)

      I think the central heating and double glazing means my body temperature is quite high so as long as I wrap up warm it takes quite a while for me to get cold outside.

      I do remember how different it was when I didn’t have a warm cosy house though…

  4. A depressing view for someone like me who hates snow!

    We’ve had our lot.

    By way of an update. It snowed overnight so I woke up to a coating of snow and it was snowing just a little on my way into work. Someone had done a very bad job of clearing the car park at work and there are great ridges of snow to be negotiated and parts not cleared at all…

    And if you look at gower, you’ll see it’s one of the less white places. Typical, we get the cold but not the fun!

    I am in one of the less white places too. I was so hoping to get snowed in for the day!

  10. That’ll be all the global warming, said Spidey with his tongue firmly planted in his cheek.
